The Shire of Vulpine Reach proudly presents Glad Tydings

This year, we are combining the Shire’s Twelfth Night and Shire’s Birthday together.  The event features a casual atmosphere of games, classes, and other activities for all ages.  As a gift to our shire, Vulpine Reach will not charge any site fee for this event!

Feast is pot luck dinner.  So, bring food to share.


Important People:

Autocrat:  Lord Uriah ben Yaakov  Email: Glad Tydings Autocrat


Tournaments:

Shire Championships will be held.
A message from the Rapier Marshal:  Rapier will be a round robin single sword double elimination tourney. The top two will face off in a Swiss five tourney.  The Marshal reserves the right to modify the tourney to better fit the turn out.
A message from the Knight Marshal:  Greetings to all! Our Shire Champion Tourney will be held at Glad Tydings, pending weather and level of interest.  The tourney will be open to members residing in the precincts of the Shire ONLY.  However, we will have a New Year’s Champion Tourney, which will be open to our out-of-town guests ONLY.  Here’s the catch: They’re the SAME tourney!  All fighters will have a turn at defending the field against all other fighters.  These bouts will take place one after another, making it a test of endurance as well as skill.  It also means you will face each fighter twice.  The Shire member with the most wins will be proclaimed the Shire Champion and the visiting fighter with the most wins will be New Year’s Champion and receive a small prize.
